Croteam's high-def update available on XBLA now.

BRISTOL, UK – Start off 2010 with a serious bang as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today released Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. For just 1200 Microsoft Points, players and "bad-A%#s" in training can download the high-definition retelling of the original Serious Sam to blast, battle and obliterate the forces of the evil Mental.

“This game takes my good looks, swarthy charm and timeless cool from the original version and ups it to a level of god-like brilliance,” says Sam ‘Serious’ Stone, everyone’s favorite loud mouth protagonist. “Gamers can even play online with up to three friends to wipe out the thorn in my side known as the Sirian Army.”

Developed by Croteam, the creators of the Serious Sam franchise, and produced in partnership with Devolver Digital, Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter follows our hero Sam as he frantically battles his way through time to ancient Egypt. Throughout 15 levels of awesomeness, he takes on a seemingly never-ending onslaught of enemies, from the charging Sirian Werebulls to the screaming Headless Kamikazes. Whether blowing apart nasties with monstrous cannons or ripping them to shreds with the lead-spewing minigun, the tools and the talent are at your disposal to ensure non-stop butt-kicking action over Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360.

Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter is PEGI rated 18 and now available for download from Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 for 1200 Microsoft Points. For more information on the game, please visit the official site at
